Kate is a great character and I enjoyed getting to know her. She has a lot on her plate: a 6 month old daughter, a husband, training to become a PI and she is pregnant again. That is a lot for anyone to handle and keep their sanity. And between pregnancy brain and her cravings, Kate is barely hanging on to hers. Some of Kate’s thoughts and actions were very funny and realistic. I also enjoyed getting to know her husband Jim, you could tell how much he loved Kate. All of the secondary characters added a lot to the story and I felt that they all combined to make a great cast of characters.
The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and through much of the book I felt like I was right there, sitting in on stake outs and watching all of the action taking place. The mystery was carried on well throughout the book and there were enough twists and turns to keep it interesting and difficult to solve.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted humorous cozy. This is the sixth book in the series and I did not feel lost at all, I felt like I knew what was going on.
